Thanks to all of you that sent your concerns and good thoughts to us regarding Morph. I am happy to report that he has been given a clean bill of health, realtively speaking. Anyway, he isn't on the verge of dying, at least so far as we can tell.
The vet did blood and urine (yikes! Costly!) and we will get that back tomorrow. He has some dental disease and has lost a couple of teeth. She said he probably has arthritis in his hips, and that the loss of muscle mass is the thinning out that we see there. But nothing ground breaking or earth-shattering.
My boy will be around a little while longer. :)
